You can't walk far this weekend without bumping into a festively decorated Christmas tree. But to see some truly spectacular holiday-evergreens-with-a-twist, check out these three uptown displays (listed from south to north):

110th St between Fifth and Lenox Aves

The nights are at their longest right now, giving you plenty of time to enjoy the flotilla of sparkling Christmas trees floating in the middle of the Harlem Meer. Like a holiday magic trick! (Photos, top and above, courtesy of Central Park Conservancy.)

1047 Amsterdam Ave at 112th St

Every year the cathedral's Christmas tree is covered in 1,000 paper cranes–a symbol of happiness and long life in Japan–then dedicated in a special service focused on world peace, diversity and global understanding. The result is both simple and spectacular.

West Harlem Piers, Henry Hudson Pkwy between St. Clair Pl and 133rd St

The decommissioned Baylander, moored at the West Harlem Piers, features holiday decorations that include a string of lights on the deck shaped like a sparkling Christmas tree. O electric tannenbaum!
